SOCIALLY DISADVANTAGED FARMERS & RANCHERS – 2501 PROGRAM

From Food Deserts to Farms: Civil Agriculture in Alaska will provide training to the socially disadvantaged beginning and veteran village farmers, provide training and experience on farmlands, provide online teaching on producing healthy food, and expose participants to USDA programs and capital sources. Our program will deliver 20 courses over three years. We will also hold an intensive five-day farm or classroom workshop for participants every year of the project. Graduates of the program will receive a certificate of completion.

American Rescue Plan

In cooperation with USDA, AVI will ensure our underserved villages have the business education, tools, accessibility to USDA programming, and support needed to succeed as farmers and ranchers. AVI will develop courses specific to Alaska village farming/ranching business planning, market development, grant writing, cost/pricing analysis, crop advice, accounting for small businesses, and overcoming hurdles to running a successful farm/ranch operation.

Details will be posted soon.
